This paper provides a profile of newcomer services and the agencies which provide them to recent immigrants in the Greater Toronto Area (GTA). It is intended as a resource for researchers, immigrants, agency, community and government organizations. The paper begins by reviewing: the range of newcomer services available, trends in recent immigrant settlement in the Toronto area, and a description of funding sources for newcomer services in the GTA. Next we discuss our research methodology and identify some limitations to the material we present. The bulk of the paper consists of an identification of agencies providing newcomer services in the City of Toronto and Regional Municipalities of Durham, Halton, Peel and York. We cite location, funding source(s), and program offering(s) for each agency. The paper concludes with tabulated summaries of the agencies described.
